*** AT&T Intellectual Property II Assigned Patent for Methods and Apparatus for Rapid Acoustic Unit Selection from a Large Speech Corpus ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 22 -- AT&T Intellectual Property II, Atlanta, has been assigned a patent (8,315,872) developed by Mark Charles Beutnagel, Mendham, N.J., Mehryar Mohri, New York, and Michael Dennis Riley, New York, for "methods and apparatus for rapid acoustic unit selection from a large speech corpus." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A speech synthesis system can select recorded speech fragments, or acoustic units, from a very large database of acoustic units to produce artificial speech. The selected acoustic units are chosen to minimize a combination of target and concatenation costs for a given sentence. However, as concatenation costs, which are measures of the mismatch between sequential pairs of acoustic units, are expensive to compute, processing can be greatly reduced by pre-computing and caching the concatenation costs. Unfortunately, the number of possible sequential pairs of acoustic units makes such caching prohibitive. However, statistical experiments reveal that while about 85% of the acoustic units are typically used in common speech, less than 1% of the possible sequential pairs of acoustic units occur in practice. A method for constructing an efficient concatenation cost database is provided by synthesizing a large body of speech, identifying the acoustic unit sequential pairs generated and their respective concatenation costs, and storing those concatenation costs likely to occur. By constructing a concatenation cost database in this faction, the processing power required at run-time is greatly reduced with negligible effect on speech quality." The patent application was filed on Nov. 29, 2011 (13/306,157). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,315,872&OS=8,315,872&RS=8,315,872 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

A wireless terminal may indicate a data rate option being used for the segment via an energy pattern applied to the tone-symbols of the segment. To indicate a first data rate option, additional energy may be applied to a first set of tone-symbols of the segment. To indicate a second rate option, additional energy may be applied to a second set of tone-symbols of the segment, the second set being different from the first set. According to some aspects, each implemented energy pattern may be represented by a pattern, which has a slope (e.g., in a logical, pre-hopped representation of the channel segment), where some of the patterns have positive slope and some of the patterns have negative slope. The use of positive and negative slopes facilitates the representation of more data rate options than would be possible if only one type of slope (positive or negative) for the energy pattern were utilized."

The patent application was filed on June 25, 2010 (12/823,841). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,315,557.PN.&OS=PN/8,315,557&RS=PN/8,315,557 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Cellco Partnership Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 22 -- Cellco Partnership, Basking Ridge, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,315,661) developed by Pingping Zong, Randolph, N.J., for an "enhanced power headroom reporting." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Method and system for power headroom reporting in a mobile device capable of supporting multiple radio transmissions via different channels. The available maximum power variation of a second channel is estimated based on power usage in radio transmission of a first channel. A plurality of measures related to radio transmission via the second channel are them computed. Whether one or more conditions for power headroom reporting of the second channel are met is tested in accordance with a configuration with respect to power headroom reporting. The power headroom is computed based on the estimated power variation relating to the first channel and the radio transmission measures relating to the second channel. A power headroom report is then generated based on the computed power headroom and such a report is then transmitted, typically from the mobile device to a base station." The patent application was filed on Dec. 31, 2009 (12/650,962). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,315,661.PN.&OS=PN/8,315,661&RS=PN/8,315,661 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** QUALCOMM Assigned Patent for User Specific Downlink Power Control Channel Q-bit ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 22 -- QUALCOMM, San Diego, has been assigned a patent (8,315,662) developed by Pablo Alejandro Anigstein, Gillette, N.J., Prashanth Hande, Jersey City, N.J., and Junyi Li, Chester, N.J., for a "user specific downlink power control channel Q-bit." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate controlling transmission power of a wireless terminal. A downlink power control channel segment may include an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) tone-symbol that may comprise a first component and a second component. The first component may be an in-phase (I) component and the second component may be a quadrature (Q) component, for example. A power command may be transmitted in the first component. Further, information associated with a wireless terminal may be transmitted in the second component. The information associated with the wireless terminal may be, for instance, a portion of a scrambling mask associated with the wireless terminal." The patent application was filed on Feb. 25, 2011 (13/034,940). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,315,662.PN.&OS=PN/8,315,662&RS=PN/8,315,662 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
